. for the first time really since watergate when we got the scandal that led to the laws we have today in large part, we saw the money pouring in in a completely unprecedented way. it is only going to get bigger or worse if you do not think that is the way it should be in 2014 and especially 2016. host: let's go to matt on our line for independents in plano, texas. caller: think you for telling -- taking my call. good morning, andy. --anted to ask i do not think it past congress? is that correct? we ended up with a neutered version of it that did not cover congressional staff. that surprised me. i remember hearing stories about staff involved with the scandal in a bank. that is the biggest problem. you look at all the money coming into elections and the so-called notpendent tax that are independent. it worries me that congress is using these committees to, you know, enrich themselves. can weed out some of this dark money going into congress. so, we start getting them in are just going to see more. it's just going to continue. host: andy kroll, we want to point out a highlighted piece from june

of people just as well as certain law changes like delaying the employer mandate, but keeping the individual mandate on the books when it comes to the president's health care law. i think people are paying more attention. they have more access to more varied view points on what's happening in washington, and they learn too many of our lawmakers are not representing the interests of the american people well, but their own interests and interest of well connected groups in washington. i think that's another reason why people are increasingly distrusting their government looking for somebody who will represent their views. i think they are looking for principled leadership, and i think we saw some of that with the shutdown where some lawmakers stood for principle, know the law is bad, and we -- lawmakers, they didn't vote for it. it was passed on a purely partisan basis, and the house has the constitutional right to deny funding to laws like that, and an attempt to do that was important to show that lawmakers act on principle at times and in the best interest of the nation. >> our next question
